It looks like Terrell Suggs may have been lost to the Baltimore Ravens because of a basketball injury. Suggs had originally stated that he tore his right Achilles tendon during conditioning drills, but now there may be more to the story than the Ravens' defensive player wants to admit.
According to ESPN, many witnesses have come forward to tell a different story about how Suggs got hurt. Herman Hoffman, the director of Akchin Gymnasium, is one of those witnesses contradicting the story from Suggs. Hoffman stated that Suggs, "got hurt Sunday prior to the championship game" at the basketball tournament.
Suggs has already responded to this latest story, telling ESPN that the story is, "simply not true." He goes on to once again state, "I hurt myself doing my conditioning test." Now the debate has begun about which side of this issue is telling the truth. It certainly seems like Suggs may have been hurt on the basketball court, but maybe he is using that as part of his excuse. Many athletes would consider basketball as a great opportunity to keep in shape, possibly even calling it "conditioning."
This is a story that is just starting to get interesting, especially because Suggs hasn't been giving full answers to those asking questions. Is he trying to state that he didn't get hurt on the basketball court? Or is he trying to act like he was never at the basketball tournament in the first place?
Do you think that Terrell Suggs is hiding the truth about his injury? Should the Baltimore Ravens deal with this situation more harshly than they already have?
